"Great Villa for multiple couples"
We were a group of 10 (5 couples) and no children. The villa was as close to perfect as we could have hoped for. The villa sits on one of the highest points on the island with amazing views of the B… More
First of all - please do forgive us for just now responding to your review! We are just now learning we can respond to our reviews. That being said - thank you for this glowing review of Casa Luna, we are so thankful that you enjoyed Casa Luna so much. We agree that this is a lovely villa and we hope that you are able to come down again soon! Until the next time you are able to make it down to St. John and Casa Luna, keep us and STJ in your thoughts by following us on FB and Insta! Have a spectacular and sunny day! :)

Overall, Casa Luna is a beautiful place to stay. There are awesome views from every side of the house. The living area has a wonderful tropical breeze going through when the doors are open, but there… More
First off - please do let us apologize for responding to this review so late (what an understatement)! We have just now discovered we are able to respond to our reviews. We are so happy you enjoyed the stellar views Casa Luna has to offer as well as those amazing breezes! However, we greatly apologize for the dryer being out of service for two days of your stay, that is something you depend on during your stay as it is advertised on the website. While I am not aware of specifically what happened, often we deal with issues regarding appliances that have to do with our service repair centers only being able to come on certain days of the week because they come from St. Thomas. We hope you allow us the opportunity to show you our stellar service with Casa Luna again. We look forward to hearing from you again soon! Until then, please follow us on FB and Insta to keep STJ in your thoughts! We hope you have an amazing day!

Thank you so much for all of your kind words about Mystic Ridge - we are so glad you have noticed all of our improvements! The Owner/Island Getaways team have worked very hard to make Mystic Ridge a beautiful and relaxing destination for our guests - its so wonderful to know you enjoyed it! I am so sorry the internet was an issue, we struggle with internet on island often. I haven't heard of any issues RE: internet lately so that may have been an issue with the service provider, but regardless, we will look into it. In the future please know we welcome hearing from the guests about issues at the villas on your trip, because we want to be able to fix them. I hope you called us! On your next visit let us know in advance you had issues before and we will place some special attention to that! Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit!

What a wonderful place to spend your Mother's Day! Where did you choose to go this year? We are so happy you enjoyed Mystic Ridge so much!

Above all else, we are so grateful that your time with Island Getaways and Mystic Ridge was a wonderful one and we hope we can host you again soon.

We can't wait to host you again, and forgive the delay in our response to your review-we didn't know we could respond on to review on Flipkey! :)
Not much to add from the other reviews other than it's hard to think of a way to improve on this villa. The view is jaw-dropping - high enough to see amazing sunrises over St John east end and Norman … More

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to Cinnamon Stones! We are sorry it is taking us awhile to respond, we were just made aware we can respond to our reviews. However-we love your review! We definitely agree with it as well, Cinnamon Stones is definitely an oasis with amazing views of the North Shore. The road has been improved a bit, and you can get out there without engaging the 4x4, but I would still recommend having it for those rainy days! We would love to have you back down to this superb oasis and we hope to hear from you soon! Until you are able to make it back, follow us on FB and Insta to keep the island in your thoughts!
All the best,

Hi Caribbean King!
Thank you so much for reviewing Cinnamon Stones for us and future guests. We depend on our guests to give unbiased feedback for our future guests. Cinnamon Stones definitely has a fantastic kitchen to practice so chef skills, and what a beautiful deck, pool and lounging area, right? This is one of those villas that will make you challenged to get out and play on St. John! I read your last line and literally laughed out loud - good advice though! This is Love City for a reason! We hope to have you down again soon! Follow us on Fb and Insta to keep this beautiful island in your thoughts!
All the best!
